This was the end result
Your end result is beautiful!
Thank you addy, just wish the sod we put down took hold...but didn't...only about 1/3 of it did so gonna just plant seed this time! I also added rock walk pathes a couple places after this pic was taken...and this year will add some more small gravel between the larger rocks and more mulch in the walk pathes...planning never ends! lol
I think your pond looks great and I still love retaining wall block .I had to make mine with it as yard slopes down and could not go to much father down or out because septic pipes are close by and there is the gutter pipe that goes under the ground there out to a water storage tank I use to water plants .I think yours came out great though ,I think how you did yours gives it more appeal as from the vantage point you look at it you really don't see the retaining wall block and plus the block makes a nice place to sit for awhile and enjoy it up close
Your pond is so very nice rebel. I agree the falls,rocks and beautiful plants all around make it look bigger and would never know it was a prefab! Maybe someday if you want it deeper and bigger you can connect it somehow to the pond you have. I've seen photo's of people who do just that and it turns out really neat.
Layering the rocks onto and up the shelves helped I think to hide that it was a prefab. The various sized rocks and plants along with the bog helps with making it look bigger than it is too. I guess I'd have to call my pond "the illusion" lol. Thanks!
Well it is a beautiful illusion.
THATS PREFAB did not know that I guess I must have read it but thought maybe you had a prefab to start with .
It's gorgeous, Rebel! And, wow, what a difference in the plant sizes from one pic to the next. Gives me lots more ideas for my own pond! Thanks for sharing your pics.
lol fooled ya huh amazing what ya can do with rocks n plants isn't it..I wanted it to look as natural as possible so just kept layering differing sized rocks up the shelves to the top and yup the pond takes on a whole new life as the summer progressed and the plants grew I think (sure wish the new sod would have taken hold oh well this spring I guess).
Hey, Rebel, since the grass didn't grow, maybe you will decide to make more plantings in that area. It's just a thought, but by spring, you will have "babies" from most of your plants that you could separate and it wouldn't cost you anything to add more flower/plant gardens.
lol my ol man works at a greenhouse come feb thru June as a part time job...we get lotssss of plants anyhow and have flower beds all over this place but good idea!
The perfect husband for a plant fanatic! I could use one of them, have spent a ton of money on plants.
I got lucky I guess lol He always brings home FLATS of stuff to plant...his boss luvs him lol or maybe he likes me hum...lol and then towards the end of most people's planting season (june) he brings home all the stuff the boss wants gone for nothing
ok now addy's trading in her hubby for a plant hubby any takers LOL hey 2 better than one
Laughing sissy, nah he is a keeper! not getting rid of him for anything, even free plants.
well you could still have 2 one for free plants .Don't they always say 2 is better than one and three is even better
Sissy, one man is more than enough to take care of.............see women are smarter................those polygamist peep guys who have more than one woman, their women can spread the caring of the one man between them and all the chores etc. and they can have little gal outings of shopping together and chit chats etc............they only have one man to try and tell them what to do and a bunch of women to out weigh him in any matters that may come up.................I mean the guy is way outnumbered..............how can he win............what a life for the women!
